On Monday, February 4th, from 11am-5pm there will be a blood drive. For the past two drives, we have donated exactly 32 units, for a total of 64. That means that for the next two drives, we need AT LEAST 28 people to successfully donate. If consistent with the past two drives, that means that we need at least 40 to try to donate. If you haven’t donated in the past, please consider trying this time. The hours are longer in hopes of giving those who have afternoon classes an opportunity to donate. The drive will take place in the commuter lounge this time Sign up for the blood drive in the Student Life Office. The signup sheet will be available on Thursday. Michigan Blood is offering a coupon for a FREE large one topping pizza from Papa Johns to everyone who signs in. Please consider donating and then celebrate your life saving donation with a free pizza! It’s a win-win! Thank you for your consideration and participation.

On Wednesday, January 23rd, Student Government had a very successful meeting and would like to update you all on what they are working on:

Most people in our culture, even our Christian culture, don’t observe anything like a Sabbath. When people think of the Sabbath, they often think of a forced, legalistic, no-fun day, where you sit and do nothing (not even smile!) in order to follow the rules.

 Student Government received a proposal to update

and revamp the Schaal lounge in different ways. A motion was proposed and carried to purchase a new stove/oven. A survey will go out very soon to get the rest of the student body’s opinion on what else, if anything, should be updated. Be looking for that in your email!

 A group of students came into the meeting on

Wednesday to propose that Student Government grants Street Team $400 for their trip to Washington D.C. for the March for Life. Student Government voted and decided to grant them $500 so that they can lower the prices for the students going on the trip and use the trip to learn as much as they can.

 It has also been decided that the study area and the TV area of the commuter lounge will be switched to be more conducive to their purposes.

Student Government would love to hear your ideas! Any proposals can be presented in meetings (email prior to set it up) or emailed to StudentSenate@kuyper.edu or your representative.

S c h o o l N e w s Are you pursuing one of the following degrees: Youth Ministry, Pre-Seminary, Music & Worship, Intercultural Studies, Sports Ministry, English, TESOL, Dance and Worship? Are you 1/2 way through your sophomore year?

That’s a far cry from how we should understand Sabbath. In recent years, many Christian scholars have been rediscovering the centrality of the discipline Sabbath for the Christian life, especially in a culture where busyness is at epidemic proportions. Here’s my suggestion, for students and professors alike: learn to observe a weekly Sabbath, a day of worship, rest, and joy. (I’m not going to walk through all the biblical reasons why Christians should observe the spiritual discipline of Sabbath, but if you’re interested in hearing more about that, there’s a sermon entitled “Sabbath Living: Rest for the Weary” at http://www.bransonparler.com/ sermons.html) Why should we do this? Here are just a few reasons. Click here to read the rest!
